    hahahaha, great point

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I know that Tyrell Terry has been a real mover up the draft board, but I would love to snag him. I'd even move up a couple of spots from 17. I think he would be a great bench piece with nba starter(or better) potential down the road. I see him more a a lead guard in the Murray/Young(dare I say it Curry?) mold. If we keep both picks, I wouldn't mind moving down from one and up from 17. My ideal scenario(if we want more rookies) is to have two picks in the 8-12 range. I think this is where this draft will have the biggest steal potential.

    My "steal" at this point would be Kira Lewis Jr. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leSY5fVq0NA

    Like Terry but not sure he has the athleticism to make it at the NBA level. Lewis Very athletic.. "looks the part" . Issue is some mocks having him go in top 10... others teens or low 20's... so not sure he will be there at 17.

    I like him a lot too. I just think that recent drafts have shown that in the modern NBA a superior shooter has more impact than a superior athlete. I just feel like we will come back to this discussion a few years from now and Terry will be guy we wish we drafted. I also like Cole Anthony. I just feel like we NEED to invest that 17th pick into a PG/Combo-guard for the future. I also want another mid 2nd rounder to take Sam Merrill. If he falls out of the draft I want him on a 2-way contract day one. I know that experts have been saying that this is a weak draft, but I feel like we will look back and see a ton of quality starters and role players coming out of this draft 5 years from now. I think that overall, this will be a much better draft than last year, especially late lottery to late 1st/early 2nd.

    I did my own personal mock draft from 1 to 30 and as far as who I had the Timberwolves taking...I had them taking LaMelo Ball at #1 and Cole Anthony at #17

    I have only 2 regrets in life. One, that I didn't join the Air Force out of high school. Two, that I defended Kahn in the early part of his tenure.

    To be fair Hawk, David Kahn was tremendous at clearing cap, winning low risk trades etc. He was good at some parts of his job, and he put us in a position to do some good things. Unfortunately, he was awful at scouting talent coming in from the draft and that was currently in the NBA. He put us in a position to have a big 3 of Curry, George (potential Flynn trade) and Cousins.

    Deep down, I hope him and Darko had a beer and cigar one night and just laugh.

    It is realistically between Edwards and LaMelo at #1

    which low risk trades did he win though? I remember being happy he was jettisoning our overpriced deals at the time for young guys whose teams had given up on them, and with low dollar contracts, but it was really more of a, "let me acquire a ton of guys under 24 and hope a couple work out" mentality. Which I didn't even hate at the time, but his demeanor, the way he spoke to others, and his inability to evaluate talent were a killer from day 1.

    I do think he would be fine in an NBA front office as a cap expert, or on the financial side, but yeah, he doesn't belong anywhere near actual basketball decisions haha

    Hopefully Tre Jones falls to us at 33.

    As a Warriors fan I can say the same thing, though traditionally the Warriors problem is poor player development and TERRIBLE trades that send out young talent for lesser vets. I do have the advantage of having stuck around being a fan long enough to get to now (and they talked about trading Curry and Klay early on too).

    This draft has more questions at the top than in the middle, unfortunately our teams are picking at the top

    My top 3 in no particular order for the Warriors are Wiseman, Okoro, and Avdija.

    The Warriors have talked up pretty much every prospect in this draft so I have no idea which way they are thinking.

    To me the only players in this draft with an elite skill are Ball and Okoro, but both are also flawed.

    Wiseman is possible too. Actually a bunch of players are possible, the question is will some other team make a deal to move up to get their choice?

    Not Okongwu? He seems like a good fit for both of us.

    I think that one will bother the fanbase more so they may be less willing to "reach" for him. But to me he's the most sure thing big in the draft. It's just that his offensive game hasn't flashed as much possibility as Wiseman's has and Wiseman physically is a perfect big center that would allow KAT to slide down while Okongwu would be a slightly odder fit.

    That said, I think the Wolves either trade down or take one of the guards.
